Child 750 is 16 year old Samantha. Several months ago she came home, turned on the lights and was enveloped in an explosion. She was severely burned, especially on her legs, and spent over a month in the hospital. She has been released but needs to continue treating her burns for 3 more months. HKIE stepped in and purchased her supplies so she can continue to heal properly.
Child 751 is 10 year old Jonathan from Macas who lost his eye several years ago in a school yard accident. Dra. Mariela Siguencia from Hospital del Rio fashioned a prosthetic eye. Unfortunately as he grew it became too small and he lost it. Here he is with his new prosthetic eye, looking perfectly normal.
Thanks to all those involved in helping these children and a special thanks to our donors for making this possible!
